The OHS Atlas 2013: The Bicentennial of the Pipe Organ in Vermont, 1814-2014$20.00
A 235-page publication, in 8 1/2" x 11" format. This example of fine research and writing by archivist Stephen Pinel includes major articles on Vermont’s native organ builders, as well as those instruments brought into Vermont throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Along with evocative writing about the state of music-making and organ building during a period of two hundred years, there is a particularly fine history of Vermont’s most famous and ubiquitous organ builder, the Estey Organ Company in Brattleboro. An extraordinary compendium by E. A. Boadway, Jr., is the complete index of pipe organs found today throughout the state. Readable and entertaining – yet – a collector’s item.
